This is a very unique text which touches on a wide range of topics. It is a complete text that starts by explaining the presence of life before and after death to generate a better understanding of this life. To strengthen the interest emerging from this life and death reality, His Holiness further explains the two truths of phenomena. Further, he explains the three trainings (trainings in ethical discipline, concentration and wisdom) as essential paths for one’s temporary happiness and for the attainment of ultimate enlightenment. In this text, he also explains the paths traveled by practitioners of Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana, and their attainments.
